Synopsis

Cuba in three deeply moving stories.

Alex and Edith, a young couple in their thirties, have a relationship made up of small gestures and tenderness amid the ruins of Cuban buildings. Milagros, an old pensioner, survives by selling peanut cones on the street and spends her days listening to radio and reading old letters. Frank and Alain, two nine-year-old best friends, go to school and dream of emigrating to the United States to become Major League Baseball players. In San Antonio De Los Baños, a town in the interior of Cuba where time seems to stand still, three worlds circulate and unfold.

Tommaso Santambrogio’s brilliant blend of three very distinct existences, all wrapped up in aspiration and melancholy, casts a disturbing light on Cuba. Contradictory forces are at work, fragmenting the lives of the characters and subtly revealing the country’s contemporary dynamics.

Kritiken

« L'émotion monte progressivement, et atteint son acmé dans une scène d'un grand lyrisme, révélant la sensibilité de ce jeune réalisateur, sur le travail duquel il conviendra de garder un œil par la suite. »
Vittoria Scarpa www.cineuropa.org 31/08/2023
